Last year, young architect Filip Bogadinov won a competition organised by the Council of Skopje, to design the memorial square, which consists of four pillars, representing Toše's band members, and a fountain representing Proeski. Kiril Todorovski, Chairman of the Council of Skopje, said: "We have built a space where young people can truly remember Toše (...) it was built at what is known as Children's Street to date."
On the 25th of January, the day Toše would have turned 28 years, his album The Hardest Thing will be also released.
Toše Proeski represented FYR Macedonia in the 2004 Eurovision Song Contest in Istanbul with Life, and was one of the most popular young artists in the Balkan region. After his death, the BBC described him as "the Elvis Presley of the Balkan". The government organized an official state funeral to honour him.
